This paper will describe a new Extreme Ultraviolet EUV test facility that is being developed at the Marshall Space Flight Center MSFC to test EUV telescopes. Two flight programs, Hi-C, the high resolution coronal imager a sounding rocket program, and SUVI, the Solar Ultraviolet Imager GOES-R, set the requirements for this new facility. This paper will discuss those requirements, the EUV source characteristics, the wavelength resolution that is expected and the vacuum chambers Stray Light Facility, Xray Calibration Facility and the NSSTC EUV test chamber where this facility will be used.
